Beijing has warned Australia that it will face "lasting punishment" over a politician's call to boycott Chinese-made products, the latest development in an escalating diplomatic dispute between the two nations.

On Monday, Queensland Senator Pauline Hanson, the founder and leader of right-wing populist party One Nation, called for a ban on the importation of goods produced in China. It comes after China's foreign minister Zhao Lijian shared a doctored image of an Australian soldier holding a knife to an Afghan child's throat on Twitter - referencing a recent report alleging that Australian special forces unlawfully killed 39 Afghans.
